1Mega Food Parks Scheme & Features Pre-Bid Meeting for Expression of Interest
2Mega Food Parks SchemeScheme formulated to accelerate growth of food processing industry in the countryCluster Based ApproachDemand driven with focus on strong backward and forward integrationEnabling Infrastructure Creation along the supply chainCreation of Central Processing Centre and Primary Processing CentresCommon Facilities and amenities to be assistedLeverage investments in food processing unitsStakeholder participation with private led initiative through Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV)
3Mega Food Parks Scheme Contd... Assistance to creation of common enabling facilitiesTypical Project Cost envisaged – Rs croreLand – not eligible for funding out of GOI grantAssistance from MinistryLimited to non-land component of the project50% of project cost limited to Rs 50 crore in general areas75% of project cost limited to Rs 50 crore in difficult & hilly areas and ITDP notified areas
4Mega Food ParksHolistic & cluster based approach- centralized facilities for key activities which are technology and capital intensiveSpecific focus on setting up backward linkages for establishing viable supply chains - Provision for farm proximate aggregation & minimal processing infrastructureInfrastructure needs of a viable Food park /Zone estimated to be about Rs.1200 million(US $ 30 million) including farm proximate primary processing facilitiesEmphasis on economic viability
5PPC – Primary Processing Centre Mega Food Park ModelPPCs would be fed by 5-10 collection centresPPCs on 2-5 acres of landFood park ( acres) fed by PPCsCPCPPCFood ParkPPC – Primary Processing CentreCCExtended StorageProcessingTo Value addGradingSorting
7Envisaged Project Components in MFP Central Processing Centre : To consist of Developed plots for food processing units, Built factory sheds for MSEs and Core processing facilities along with basic infrastructureCore Processing FacilitiesAt CPC : Sorting and grading, Packaging unit, Dry warehouses, Specialized storage facilities including CA Chambers, Variable humidity stores, Pre-cooling chambers, Ripening chambers etc, Cold chain infrastructure, Irradiation facilities, Steam generation & sterilization units, Food incubation-cum-development centers etc.At least 50% of the project cost (excluding land cost) shall be towards creation of above mentioned facilitiesAbove is an indicative list of facilities and SPV may select or induct any facilities based on need & viabilityAdequate Consultation with the potential food processing units to finalize the components of CPC.
8Envisaged Project Components in MFP Primary Processing Centres(PPCs): To serve as spoke for CPCCore Processing FacilitiesAt Primary Processing Centers: Sorting and grading, packaging facilities , dry warehouses, specialized cold stores including pre-cooling chambers, ripening chambers , reefer vans, mobile pre-coolers and collection vansPPCs are envisaged as key components to facilitate strong linkages for sustainable supply for adequate raw materials to ensure at least 250 days of operationPPCs are to be strategically located for an optimum coverage in zone of influence of Mega Food Park.
9Envisaged Project Components in MFP Factory BuildingsProvision For MSEs – Maximum 10% of total allottable area for setting up unitsEnabling Basic InfrastructureRoads, drainage, water supply, electricity supply ETP, logistics facilities, weighbridges etcNon –core InfrastructureAdmin buildings, training centers, canteen, workers hostel, trade/display center etc: Cost of non-core infrastructure facilities, not exceeding 10% of the project cost, would be eligible for grant purposeProject Implementation ExpenseCost of hiring domain consultants (PMC) by SPV – limited to 2% of eligible grant amount
10Supply Chain Management – Strategy Appropriate institutional development at grass roots level for backward linkagesInvolvement of farmers/producers as stakeholdersOrganizing farmers in SHGs-Cluster approachPossibility of formation of Producers’ Company involving SHGs/ farmers can be an optionWherever possible, Centers to be owned and managed by SHGs/EntrepreneursPossibilities of contract farming
11Special Purpose Vehicle SPV can be constituted by stakeholders like infrastructure developers, FIs/Banks/PE Firms, Org. retailers, Food Processors & other service providers, Farmer Orgs. etc…SPV to be a Body Corporate registered under the Companies ActSPV should have wide dispersal of equity holding so that it enjoys benefit of collective compositionEach SPV to haveat least three entrepreneurs / business units independent of each other with no common directorsat least one should be from the food processing sector with at least 26% equity in the SPV
12Special Purpose Vehicle Contd… SPVs to bring in at least 20% of the project cost, including the cost of land, as their contribution- 10% in case of Difficult, hilly & ITDP notified areasCombined net worth of the shareholders of the SPV should not be less than Rs. 50 Cr - Food Processor should have at least 10 Cr of net worthGovernment agencies may also become shareholders in SPV, holding to be less than 26% of share capital so as to ensure private sector character of the SPV
13Special Purpose Vehicle Contd… Reconstitution of SPV allowed but at least 75% of the initially approved shareholders to remain intact during implementation period of project.Following points are to considered while constituting the SPVPromoter with negative net worth in SPV is not allowedPromoter being a defaulter in RBI list is not allowedProposed equity should be in proportion to net worth of individual promoter
14Role of Special Purpose Vehicle Formulation of Detailed Project Report (DPR)Procure land & ensure external infrastructure linkages for the projects Obtain key statutory approvals/clearances including environmental clearances etc. Achieve financial closure of project Responsible for development, ownership & management of Mega Food ParkOperating a Trust and Retention Account (TRA) to ensure utilization of grant in a transparent and judicious manner and maintain proper accountExecute project in a transparent, efficient & timely manner
15LAND ISSUESAt the time of Final Approval, the SPV must be in possession of requisite Land.If the land is in possession with one of the promoters, then SPV should have clear title of land and it should be duly registeredApproval for change in land use for industrial/infrastructural purposes to be takenProvision of “ sub-lease” clause to be stated clearly in case of Government land.The area for CPC should have good accessibility to Market and Transport network
16CLUSTER MAPPING RELATED ISSUES Details of the focus crops & raw material assessment to be providedViability of Mega Food Park cluster to be established and it should support at least 200 days of operationInherent risks in the continuous supply of raw materials to be identified and their mitigations to be identified.
